A certain tragic cycle in life is the cycle of feelings. A likes B but B likes C while C likes someone else, etc. B doesn’t want to hurt A so B pretends he/she doesn’t have a clue and continues to pursue C while C does the same that B does to A in order to avoid futher drama (while C has the same issue with D, and D with E). This cycle is immensely frustrating to both the stakeholders and the audience, yet is what makes a story intriguing to tell.
